Singh, Gilani meet at SAARC not ruled out: Krishna
Thimpu (Bhutan), Apr 26: After the sensational hand shake between Manmohan Singh and Yousaf Raza Gilani at the US Nuclear summit, the world may get to see the prime ministers of India and Pakistan exchange words at the upcoming SAARC summit.

Hinting at a possibility of talks between the leaders, external affairs minister S M Krishna on Monday, Apr 26 said that a meeting on the Indo-Pak bilateral ties can not be ruled out.

"I am not ruling it out," Krishna said in response to a question if Singh and Gilani plan to meet at the two-day SAARC summit, scheduled to begin on Apr 28.

"Let"s wait and watch, how things are going to work out," he said.

With the heads of several countries' governments coming together at the summit for the multilateral meet, SAARC may also be host to some bilateral meetings, Krishna said.

"All bilateral issues between India and Pakistan will be discussed as and when the Prime Ministers meet," the minister said here.

The Indo-Pak dialogue came to a standstill following the Mumbai terror attacks in Nov 2008, which killed over 200 in India's financial capital.
